The Best Steps for Storing Tomatillos

Post  Julia Wilson on 8/20/2017, 3:01 am

1. Harvesting
If you are growing tomatillos at home, you should remove them from the branch once the fruit starts to expand out of the husk. This sign means it is ripe. Husks grow first, and the tomatillos gradually fill in the husk. Check the bottom of the husk to see if it is opening due to the size.

2. Determine When You Will Use Them
Your next step is to determine when you want to use the tomatillos, so you know how to store fresh tomatillos. If you plan to use them in the next few days, you can easily store them in a dry, cool place, such as your countertops. Only do this if you know you plan to use them for a recipe in the very near future.

3. Long Term Storage
If you are wondering do tomatillos need to be refrigerated, the answer is yes. When you know, you won’t use them anytime soon, freezing or refrigerating them are the best two choices. They are similar to veggies like radishes and celery which cannot last long without cool temperatures.

4. Storing in the Refrigerator
Learning how to store tomatillos in the refrigerator is easy! Most people opt to store tomatillos with husks by using a paper bag. Why do you want to use a paper bag? The purpose of the bag is to absorb any extra moisture within the husk. However, if you already removed the husks from the tomatillos, you can store them in a plastic bag instead. Your refrigerator temperatures must be between 35 and 40 degrees!

5. Freezing Tomatillos
If you want to freeze tomatillos for much later use, you have to remove the husks by hand before doing so. Once the husks are removed, you should put them

thanks Great info. I only have one tomatillo plant, just starting to bud. I've never grown these before and want to do right by this beautiful plant. (It's actually more like a tree. geek)

Welcome Julia from Ottawa, Canada. 

Thanks for the info about tomatillos.  I've got four plants and two of them are huge and loaded with tomatillos. Last year I used the tomatillos in salsa. Still have several jars of the canned salsa.

Country Naturals,

It's said that one needs to grow at least two tomatillo plants to get a harvest.

Believe me, though, you'll never have to plant more!  Like borage, they tend to re-seed themselves....
